Former Gov. Nails Ward (“The Fraud”) Churchill

JammieWearingFool has a post that includes the following from the Rocky Mountain News ---

Former Gov. Bill Owens on Friday compared one-time University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill to a famous moviemaker - and it wasn't a compliment.

"In retirement, he's starting to look a lot like Michael Moore," Owens said, referring to the frumpy director of Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11.

Churchill, fired by CU in 2007, is suing to get his job back.

Owens and others, including University of Colorado regents, are being deposed as part of the trial, scheduled to start March 9 in Denver District Court.

Owens declined to discuss in detail what kinds of questions he was asked and what answers he gave, but Owens wasn't shy about expressing his opinion of Churchill.

"Ward Churchill is a plagiarist and a fraud, and, regrettably, we continue to pay for his deception."

Churchill could not be reached for comment.

Don’t forget to give JammieWearingFool's post a look. There’s some nice skewering of Ward "the fraud" there.
